Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Emoticon

No surprises here, Thuesday update!

So it's time to present the results from the previous poll, you fans were asked what the most important act in an adult scene within the game was and 2349 people voted...it was really close between all options!

Vaginal Sex
Won by 59%, being 1388 of the votes.
Anal Sex
Second with 53%, 1250 of the votes.
Blowjob
Third with 49%, 1172 of the votes.
Titfucking
Fourth with 47%, 1115 of the votes.
Cumshot
Came fifth, 44% with 1050 of the votes.
Gangbangs

Came last, 34% with 817 of the votes.

Yes, it does look really fucked up how so many can have such high percentage, but remember that each person could vote on several options this time! Though I'm happy to see Anal Sex doing so well, since it's my favorite! xD

And on the side here is an sample of who'll be doing the portraits for the game, Seth.
He did a few bonus artworks for the previous game, but this time I hired him to draw all female emoticons, and might end up doing some of the male characters too.
What you see here is Gabrielle - Normal Expression.

Speaking about which, earlier I mentioned a kind of mini-game where you can make Farah expose her tits to stranger and earn a little pocket money in exchange, now I'm also working on adding a second feature that involves plenty of men, mugs and taverns...plus adding Gabrielle to the mix.
And the beta for this month is still on the way, I'm just working on polishing a few rough edges so the beta doesn't look like an...alpha build. (harr harr harr)

A little slim news week maybe, but more to come next Thuesday!

    1. When I saw this emoticon two things came to mind: That looks so freaking amazing and I'm dying to see what lies beyond those borders. I can't wait to see more and I'm more stoked about this game than ever before.

    2. As long as people don't start expecting things I haven't even announced, I think we'll all get along juuuust fine. x3

  2. Seth's artwork here does work really well, Gabe. I think this is a good neutral-happy look for Gabrielle. Is each character going to have a set of expressions? How well do icons like this convey more emotive expressions?

    Great to hear the mini-game getting more depth! It really seems like you're adding a lot of new features and extra development to this episode. Always great to see the adult nature of the game incorporated more into the gameplay and story. I hope we can look forward to more of that!

    Can't wait to start Beta testing. Have you thought of how Beta testers are going to communicate with you? Should there be LOQO Beta forums?

    1. Yup, every female character will have nine expressions, just like Opala, Farah and Osira had in the previous games. :3
      And I'm not sure yet how communication will work with the beta, might be best to just follow how it worked in the previous two games, by having playtesters contact me directly with issues.

    2. Nice! With the artwork being such a big part of LOQO, it must be a challenge to work with all the different artists and coordinate all their effort. Glad you have things planned out, and I hope all the development goes smoothly.

      And for the Beta communication, I hope you don't get 100 emails all telling you the same thing! XD It might be worthwhile to look into a free solution where people can communicate with each other, but if the Beta release is a ways off then there's plenty of time to think about it.

      With the larger cast there must be a lot of dialog and other work as well. Best of luck with everything!

    3. Art is just a small portion, then you have all the sprites, battleposes, voices etc. to handle as well. ^^

  3. Well at least there's some Good News and stuff from Gabe this week something to be happy and proud about :) , That Emoticon looks really colorful and gorgeous, going to be a pretty exciting thing to look to Gabe. :3

    Bad News is Robin Williams Dying Pretty Sad , member him in peter pan and misses Doubtfire. :(

    And the new Tomb raider only being on Xbox :(

    1. The news about Robin Williams really was sad...but I think the best way to honor his memory is to enjoy his movies and laugh at his jokes. :)

      And the Tomb Raider "exclusive" on Xbox is just Microsoft propaganda, it's only timed exclusive...it's sad really, the word exclusive is thrown around so much these days with games that it has lost all meaning, nothing is exclusive if it ends up with everyone.

  4. I'm getting more excited about this with each update. I can't wait till the beta.

  5. I think I should explain my choice on this weeks poll. It's not that i don't like Opala and Osira or that I think Farah is better.

    It's just Farah is more fleshed out (pun intended) than the others. She has shown herself to be a pure, shameless cock-whore like when you meet her in Rockgard and she has been a proud, noble woman of Egyptian Royalty. Plus a great part of her comes from how you where able to create a character that can "have sex" with a Giga Lardo but who can still "make love" in the emotional sense with the hero. Farah is the kind of woman that can suit my changing needs. For example am I in the mood for a slutty cum-dumpster, a fun and frisky lover or a caring and erotic mother figure.

    Osira is interesting too. I like her venom and self obsessed attitude. And while I love an evil girl that takes charge, I feel we haven't seen any other side to her. It was hinted in LOQO II that she thinks of her monsters as just another race with the right to live, but twisted with her "right to an empire" ideals. Seeing as she is the only (or at least on of the very few) human in her empire, it would be nice to explore maybe her feelings of loneliness, resentment over losing Egypt and maybe deep down sadness and that she misses the love of a family.

    Opala is harder to pin down. Since she spends a lot of time kidnapped we see a lot of her as a cumslut. The scene with the Minotaur in LOQO II being a great example. She says she doesn't want sex, she see's it's huge cock, she get's a little horny and then she's all over it, not that Farah hasn't done this too. While Opala has shown strength, it has been the strength to rule Egypt and to take action. I feel she needs a little more personal strength and courage.

    What it all boils down to is a matter of ratio.
    While there are more things I dislike about Farah over Opala, Farah has more things that I do like. And while I love Opala and Osira, they don't have as much to love about them as Farah.

    Now I'm very sorry, I'm afraid I'm going to have to cross the line and be rude for this but I'm giving you an order.
    Don't take this weeks poll as a sign of which royal to focus on, but instead see it as a sign of which girls can be improved.

    Your biggest fan.

    1. Well, for me it's just that Farah can be "public domain" and yours in same time. For Opala there is always that... competetion with a panther, which isn't really my thing. The fact that she is a ruler without any ruling capabilites may also play a role.

      Delete
    2. Osira's charm is because she tries so hard to be evil and yet fails every time in the end, by either getting defeated or out-evil'd. Cute as fuck.

      And there's nothing better than out-eviling a villain as the protagonist, with her being impressed initially and then just being flat-out terrified that she's not in charge anymore and someone beat her at her own game.

      Out of the three heroines, Osira has the most fleshed-out personality IMO, even if it's just "I'm an evil bitch, errybody's getting fucked when I'm in charge!"
      She also seems the strongest mentally, and the harder something is, the more satisfying it is to break it. And by "break it" I don't necessarily mean fucking her till she's nothing but a constantly-ahegao'ing mess, but possibly converting her out of the evil megalomaniac mode through the almight power of the D.

  6. Oh yeah, the emoticons look great for sure! Good choice! From this one pic of Gabs I can tell this Seth fellow has a more "elegant" style and I can't wait to see Osira and Layla in his style.

    Now, for the current poll its no wonder that Farah is winning but I do hope you won't forget of naughty Osira and her origins - letting monsters ravish her for power! I really hope the monster sex isn't out the window with LoQO - Origins. ;_;

    1. Monster sex out of the window...? In a LoQO game...!? Muah hah ha, never! >:D

  7. Gabrielle's portrait looks great, can't wait to see the others. It's also kind of funny how close Osira and Opala are in the poll, I prefer Osira myself, but they're all good.

    I also had a few questions about the beta:

    Is it just one release, or will there be new versions periodically until the full release?

    Is it going to be distributed through Offbeatr, or another source?

    And most importantly - will there be lots of awesome, dirty, fucking?

    1. There will be a lot of beta versions, some might be months apart, some might roll out just a hour before the previous one.
      It all comes down to how many bugs/glitches are found and how severe they are.

      Betas will be distributed through Offbeatr, or at least the download links.

      Obviously there will be a lot of dirty, fucking, the only lazy days I've had since I started are sick days. x3

  8. ...Daggome it. I'm just not an anal fan, okay? I don't hate it or anything, I just... If it's going in somewhere, why not the slot it was made for? Who wants to violate the warranty?

    Also, that portrait is pretty great, and I look forward to seeing the rest in the finished product.

  9. Will there be any minigammes like in the first LOQO

    1. Possibly, three years is a long time, so it's really too early to say. :3

  10. Hi Gabe,

    I want to start by saying that the Gabrielle emoticon is awesome. She looks so cute and Seth's line work is so clean...it's just great. I also want to ask if you have thought about including Opala in your (sort of) mini-game. I mean we all know that it doesn't take too much persuading for her to turn into a slut that is just as cock hungry as her incredible mother.

    Finally, I would like to join with another one of your fans in expressing my sorrow over the loss of Robin Williams. This month started out so well with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, only to take somewhat of a depressing turn with the news of his death.

    Well, thank gods we have things like raunchy Swegabe certified porn to lift our spirits (as well as a certain obvious body part) right up. :)

    1. There is still some way ahead before the protagonist even meets Opala, so I haven't been thinking of that yet. :)

  11. how will those who donated via other methods do betas and stuff?

  12. Uh oh, this poll rigged as well? Osira, who is my favorite so I don't mind (lol), just shot ahead of Farah...

    1. Considering Osira suddenly got 300-400 votes in 12 hours, I'd say that is quite possible. x3

  13. about when do you figure for the beta links to be sent? also it kinda sucks people are cheating...seeing as osira really is one of my favorites...though id much prefer to have more latex and such...more heroxfurry and not just human on hhuman or monster on woman. hell there were several enemy monsters i would have banged in the first two games.
